STEP 1. You start by drawing some basic lines that will be the center of each shape you draw. The "X" is for the octagon.   STEP 2. The two lines to the left are going to be the center points for the square and rectangle. The top line should be a vertical one, and the bottom line should be a horizontal one. From these draw out the square, and rectangle.   STEP 3. Now you will draw the circle, and then the octagon. Remember the octagon has eight sides. Use the "X" as a guideline to draw this shape.   STEP 4. Lastly, draw the triangle. The top point to the triangle should start right at the tip of the vertical guideline. Once all your shapes are drawn out, erase the guidelines.   STEP 5. This is how your shapes come out looking when you are done. Pretty darn simple right. Now use what you just drew! Good job.   STEP 6. Right click the marquee icon to get the different varieties of shapes you can make selections with. Once options open up for you, select the “elliptical marquee tool” as seen in this photoshop tutorial figure.   STEP 7. Drag your cursor over the canvas to make a circle. To make a perfect circle, click and hold onto the “shift” key on your keyboard. This will make the circle and exact amount of pixels.   STEP 8. Right click on the circle selection option and click “stroke”.   STEP 9. This option is going to allow you to stroke the circle. The “location” option tells you where you want the stroke to surround. The “stroke” mode allows you to select the color and size of the stroke. “Blending” allows you to make the stroke have different styles without use of a layer. My defaults for circles are the pixel size of 3, and the location of “inside”.   STEP 10. Now just click "okay" and you should have yourself a perfect circle. I hope you liked the instruction tutorial on how to make a circle using photoshop.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8. Step 9. Step 10.
